A currency manipulator, like asking to visit and inventory your own gold held in a Federal Reserve bank, ya mean? Like that kind of manipulator?

No surprise the Fed believes Germany is a currency villain because they can afford more stimulus and they're refusal is making the Keynesian economies look bad. It really is a race to the bottom.

Whenever you hear about Country A complaining about the trade surpluses in Country B, you can be sure that Country A is inflating its currency like mad [it's inflation that causes trade deficits] and wants Country B to follow suit just to make things "fair".

Germany has maintained a trade surplus for decades because its monetary policy has held inflation to a much lower level than virtually everyone else. Japan enjoyed the same situation till recently when it caved and started printing Yen till Hell won't have them. Ditto China.

It's kind of funny.

The complaining country never comes right out and asks for currency debasement [which inflation is] but insists that the offending country "develop its domestic market" which is a real hoot because inflating the currency and encouraging a trade deficit causes just the opposite -- consumers buy more from abroad where it's cheaper.

German has to work hard and export without consuming. If the Germans consumed everything they produced, how would 11 million Greeks survive?

Yet the countries still cleave to fiscal austerity policies that constrict internal demand.

I wonder if we can implement the same here. What are these policies?
